Snow and extreme weather

More than just a day off: with a sledding hill out back and two recesses a day, Gordon makes the snow day magic last long after the roads clear. A look at the first real snow of 2019

Gordon has a simple policy for extreme weather.

There are no delayed openings or early closings.

If school is cancelled, that decision will be made by 5:30am and announced shortly thereafter on radio and television.

If school is not cancelled, classes will begin on time and the school will remain open until the last child is picked up. If weather deteriorates, after school programs besides Gators and YAP may be cancelled. This decision would be announced by one pm, and would impact every after school activity except Gators and YAP child care.

When school is closed, all after school programs are cancelled as well.
 

Riding the public bus

Bus riders should check for closures and delays in their local school district. 

If a student's local public schools are closed, or the East Providence schools, the bus will not be running.

School delays are tricky because students from multiple districts ride the same bus. A student’s bus will be delayed by the longest announced delay of all the school districts on that student’s bus route. Route information, and more, can be found on the Rhode Island Department of Education's student transportation page (scroll down to "Inclement weather...").
